Camp Argo is a non-profit organization and our mission is to promote and embrace the philosophy that “Everyone can be a HERO!” At Camp Argo we strongly feel that it is important for your child to grow through interactive play, traditional and non-traditional sports, and other creative outlets in a safe learning environment.
Camp Argo believes in empowering campers to dream big, be kind to one another, find their strengths, try their best, and learn to lead by example. To us at Camp Argo, this is the definition of a HERO!
Camp Argo helps each camper realize that the attributes of a true HERO are within all of us! With this in mind, our program is designed to emphasize the HERO-like characteristics that we discover within each other when trying new activities, participating in recreational group games, spending time with our peers, and giving back in the community.
In doing so Camp Argo recognizes the courageous & resilient HEROIC qualities our campers demonstrate and honor them at the end of each day. Also, Camp Argo invites local heroes, community leaders, artists, entertainers, and educators to come speak and work with our campers to give them a full, engaging camp experience.
Camp Argo was named after the heroic story of Jason and the Argonauts, and their quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The Golden Fleece was the wool coat of a golden winged ram that was so valuable, the king had it hung on a tree protected by a fierce dragon. It was a feat deemed impossible.
Jason selected a team of HEROES called the Argonauts after the ship they were to set sail on, the Argo. It was to take them on a tremendous adventure where they would face many challenges along the way to retrieve the Golden Fleece. Each of the heroes played significant roles in winning these difficult challenges by using their personal strengths.
Similarly, our campers will also partake in many challenges and adventures throughout the summer. We hope our campers will use their individual talents to succeed in the activities they participate in at Camp Argo and to discover their inner HERO!
